Nick Cannon, who is currently preparing for another season of hosting duties on America’s Got Talent, just became a whole lot busier! Nick and his wife, singing superstar Mariah Carey, became the parents of twins, a boy and a girl, this weekend. Keep reading after the jump for all the details…
America’s Got Talent host, Nick Cannon, and his wife Mariah Carey, welcomed their twins into the world on Saturday April 30 at 12:07 PM local time at a hospital in Los Angeles, California. Their baby girl was born first, weighing in at 5 lbs, 3 oz, followed closely by her brother, who weighed 5 lbs, 6 oz.
Following the birth, Nick tweeted, “My wife just gave me the most incredible anniversary gift ever in life! I won’t ever be able to top this!”
Yes, the birth came on the couple’s wedding anniversary, something Nick had predicted would happen while appearing on The Talk on Thursday April 28. He admitted they had already had a false alarm the night before, and said, “I’m not trying to be a psychic, but I think that, you know we get married every year, we renew our vows every year. I think we are going to renew our vows in the hospital, I can feel it…We got the minister coming in. So this gown will not be a wedding gown but a hospital gown.”
Mariah’s rep spoke to People about the birth, confirming, “She’s doing great.” She added, ” I spoke to both of them and they are both completely overjoyed.” She also told the magazine the couple listened to Mariah’s song, We Belong Together after the birth of their son and daughter.
